Before the annual Wacky Wine Festival, we put together a creative team of digital storytellers to create, experience and share what this year visitors can expect. The festival is all about the unique lifestyle in the Robertson Wine Valley that is far beyond the awarded wines. All the content we shared via the #WackyWine hashtag proves it.
Exquisite food pairings, fascinating boutique wineries with a story behind every bottle, great spots to enjoy nature and one of a kind activities, amazing desserts and country breakfasts overlooking the incomparable scenery are just some of the hidden gems in Roberston Wine Valley.
The Wacky Wine Festival is famous as a top wine festival in the country and everybody knows about the awarded wines and brandy of the valley. However, it’s the food scene and gastronomy, the great local products, its breathtaking nature and the passion of its wine farmers that played and important role in our digital story weekend and what gave to our storyteller’s inspiration to create their content.
Our Digital Story Telling team included a Food Blogger, Fashion Photographer, Life Style Instagrammer, Travel Journalists, Travel Blogger plus a cameraman to create daily videos on our 3-day event. Our team was diverse so we could show the Robertson wine valley from different angles and these are some of the pictures they took.
